I think the brackets for (Stanley Cup Champs) means that the team that defeats them will become them right?
Realistically, 7th-8th is where I see us ending up although it wouldn't completely surprise me if we ended up 4th-5th because we will (hopefully) have a healthy Markov and Gorges, plus the addition of Cole.
I don't really care about these predictions. The only thing I'm curious is that we finished ahead of Buffalo and NYR last year, we added Markov, Cole and Gorges to our roster, yet we're dropping.
I'm pretty sure they would have rated Toronto or NJ higher up if they acquired Cole, Markov and Gorges. So obviously, I don't agree with them.
I also don't see Philly being 4th. Not at all.
LOL you guys crack me up! One publication keeps putting us 8th & you guys think it's written in stone. Where else do you think we belong 2nd? Toronto keeps getting placed 10th, ask them what they think.
Anyway somethings gotta give, because I seriously doubt Jersey has another bad year, they are way to good.
